    Pros

    Many talented and driven employees. Work/Life balance is wonderful and why people are staying.

    Cons

    Top tier management lack leadership skills and ability to implement or follow through on what they claim are their plans. Pay has remained stagnant for years. Last year's increase in pay was 1% for the very top performers. Bonuses didn't exist this year and last year's were pitiful as well.

    "Kind people, dysfunctional organization"

    StarStarStarStarStar
    Former Employee - Consultant 
    Doesn't Recommend
    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I worked at Kantar full-time

    Pros

    -The people are extremely kind and really care about how you are doing, even outside of work -You get exposure to Fortune 500 clients -LOTS of work/life balance

    Cons

    - Technology is absolutely outdated and dysfunctional. Laptops malfunction regularly, which can be extremely embarrassing when you are with clients - Management constantly makes several poor decisions (like rebranding three times within 2 years), and then they expect the rest of the organization to explain the mess to clients - HUGE emphasis on training people how to sell work rather than do the work - Pay is low (but to be fair, number of hours you're expected to work each week is also lower than average). Promotions and bonuses are not at all merit-based. Everyone moves up at the same time - which means people lose motivation quickly. - No real impact with clients. Organization is constantly losing clients and trying to justify why that keeps happening.
